Studemont Street in Houston, Texas, facing north-northeast from its intersection with Center Street. This photo was taken just west of Chaney Junction on the Southern Pacific railroad tracks. Notice the two poles along the tracks. Back in the mid-1990s, I picked eight insulators off the pole to the right. Here they are, in proud railroad service in 1959! The original photo was a bit dingy, so I added the sepia tone to brighten it up some.
